& ready
to respond

Severe storms are never a welcomed visitor, but they are a fact of life when you live on Florida’s east coast. Over the years, Croom Construction Company, our clients, and Indian River County have experienced their share of hurricanes and other severe storms. Proper preparation is the key to weathering these storms with as little damage as possible. 

We have a solid storm preparedness plan that is extremely successful, including:

  • Direct coordination and communication with local emergency service providers, including the Vero Beach Police Department and Indian River County Sheriff’s Office to ensure that proper approvals can be provided at designated checkpoints.
  • Direct communication with all private gated communities in which we have projects. Post-storm access is immediately available as required.
  • Emergency procedures to safeguard our computer servers and hard drives as well as alternative banking options in case of sustained power loss.
  • Securing of all job sites and company materials pre-storm from Day 6 through Day 3 of projected landfall. This allows ample time for evacuation and employees’ personal planning.
  • Designation of our teams’ post hurricane meeting place.
  • Inventory and updating of Croom’s hurricane material boxes and generators prior to each July to ensure all required items are in place, replenished, and serviceable.
  • Direct communication with our affiliate, Whitehall Professional Property Management, who also has an excellent emergency preparedness planboth pre- and post-storm for our property management clients.

Many of our clients are out of residence during storm season and are understandably anxious when storms are approaching. Our goal at Croom Construction Company in conjunction with Whitehall Professional Property Management is to provide a proactive approach to storm management so our clients know their properties are well prepared for impending weather.

Our clients receive the benefits of over 45 years of experience dealing with Florida’s severe weather. Our proven emergency preparedness program and excellent communication standards have helped our clients to ride the storm knowing they are in the hands of a capable team, ready to respond to mother nature’s surprises.
